Oliver Nelson - The Blues And The Abstract Truth
Recorded in 1961 by the founder of the Impulse! label, Creed Taylor, Oliver Nelson's TheBlues And The Abstract Truth is an historic, landmark recording. Oliver Nelson plays alto and tenor saxophone on his own compositions and arrangements here with generous support from such jazz luminaries as Bill Evans, piano; Freddie Hubbard, trumpet; Paul Chambers, bass; Roy Haynes, drums; and Eric Dolphy, alto sax and flute. The Blues And The Abstract Truth is Oliver Nelson's lasting contribution to the heritage of our American jazz idiom.
